The organist who plays Star Wars in church

3:23 min

As the new Star Wars film opens in Sweden, we spoke to someone who says the theme music works perfectly in church.

The Star Wars music is made for a big orchestra and the organ is a huge instrument and fits perfectly.You can make so many sounds with it."

Organist Ulla Olsson says she fell in love with Stars Wars when it came out in 1977. She has interpreted John Williams' film score on her new record, May The Force Be With You, which is entirely performed on the van den Heuvel pipe organ at Katarina church in Stockholm.
